Whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner, frittatas are a quick and easy, long-lasting hunger fixer.
These versatile dishes can be enjoyed at any time of the day, and it’s easy to make a big frittata for one meal and have leftovers for the next, and maybe even one more after that! It’s the perfect meal idea for making use of neglected leftover vegetables or meat that’s been in the freezer for awhile and needs to be used.
Usually egg-based and with filled meat and delicious veggies, frittatas are the perfect complete meal for Paleo people. This list was actually surprisingly easy to come up with considering it’s a Paleo favorite that everybody has had a go at making.

Top 10 Paleo Frittata Recipes
This frittata is great because it’s so fast to make (15 minutes including prep AND cook time!) If you can’t find banana shallots, onion is a fine substitute (although not as fancy). (Photo credit: Peter of Strictly Paleoish.)
Ingredients: eggs, salt, ghee, banana shallot, cherry tomatoes, Serrano or prosciutto ham, olive oil, garlic, fresh parsley.
I was never a fan of smoked salmon until recently, but it has certainly grown on me! It makes a great protein-rich topping for this beautiful frittata. (Photo credit: Rach from Meatified.)
Ingredients: coconut oil, eggs, smoked salmon, green onion sauce (raw cashews, coconut milk, green onions, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper), sliced green onion.
This is a great vegetarian frittata but it is chock full of cream and cheese so if you don’t eat Primal, you’ll have to leave those out or find dairy-free substitutes. (Photo credit: Josh from Slim Palate.)
Ingredients: eggs, butter or avocado oil, heavy cream, fresh rosemary, fresh thyme, garlic cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, feta cheese, hazelnuts, salt and pepper.
4. Sausage, Spinach & Feta Frittata (Primal)
This is a meaty version of the above recipe (also Primal) and I love the idea of using muffin cups to make mini frittatas that you can take on-the-go. (Photo credit: Melissa of I Breathe… I’m Hungry.)
Ingredients: mild sausage, frozen spinach, feta cheese, eggs, heavy cream, almond milk, salt, black pepper, ground nutmeg.
Here’s a dairy-free (although bacon filled!) frittata that is a bit spicy due to the serrano peppers. If your spice tolerance is low, adjust accordingly!
